About the Talk
Her stories are known for their shocking violence and their seedy, white-trash atmospherics, but Flannery O’Connor led a most devout, well-regulated and conventional life on a Middle Georgia dairy farm. In this talk, biographer Jonathan Rogers explores the paradoxes of Flannery O’Connor’s life and work, in which grace comes not like a gentle rain, but like a thunderstorm, destroying even as it illuminates.
ABOUT THE Speaker
Jonathan Rogers is an author and teacher living in Nashville. Besides four novels, he has also published books on C.S. Lewis and St. Patrick as well as a “spiritual biography” of Flannery O’Connor titled The Terrible Speed of Mercy.
